Although That’s My Boy may have been a tragically bad comedy team-up for Adam Sandler and Andy Samberg, Hotel Transylvania looks to be the dream pairing these two comics were destined to have.
The CG film focuses on Dracula (Sandler) and his daughter (Selena Gomez). Dracula opens up a place for all monsters to hang out at, called Hotel Transylvania. By the way, the launching point for the film sounds oddly like an episode of Disney’s Ducktales, named “Ducky Horror Picture Show”. In the episode, Scrooge McDuck sets up a hotel that eventually turns into a monster meeting house.
Hotel Transylvania focuses on Dracula’s teenage daughter who wants to see the world outside of monster-dom. Suddenly, a very annoying teenage boy (Samberg) shows up and falls in love with Dracula’s daughter. It’s Romeo and Juliet story that Dracula is not too pleased with.
This may be the big career reboot Sandler has been looking for. If Eddie Murphy could revitalize his career as Donkey in Shrek, why not Sandler as Dracula?
